Publisher's Summary

Following the death of their father, Beth's brother, Richard, returns from the army to claim his share of the family estate. However, Beth's hopes of a quiet life are dashed when Richard, dissatisfied with his meager inheritance and desperate for promotion, decides to force her into a marriage for his military gain. He will stop at nothing to get his way. 

Beth is coerced into a reconciliation with her noble cousins in order to marry well and escape her brutal brother. She is then thrown into the glittering social whirl of Georgian high society and struggles to conform. The effeminate but witty socialite Sir Anthony Peters offers to ease her passage into society, and she is soon besieged by suitors eager to get their hands on her considerable dowry. 

Beth, however, wants love and passion for herself and to break free from the artificial life she is growing to hate. She finds herself plunged into a world where nothing is as it seems and everyone hides behind a mask. 

Can she trust the people professing to care for her?

Just brilliant!

A brilliant rendition of one of my favourite books of all time. This audio book has brought the characters of “The Mask of Duplicity” to life. I thoroughly recommend Julia’s “Jacobite Chronicles” to all readers who enjoy historical romance with accurate elements of history tied in with characters brought to life with the penmanship of a wonderful writer. I cannot wait for the next in series to come out as an audio book.

Not the one!!!

Did not like this at all. I'm not sure what the beginning was all about, but it was tedious. As for the narrator's, they were way out. didn't finish the book, only got to chapter 2 or 3 I think and fell to sleep unhappy. would recommend not to purchase this audio, as I want to see if I can a refund.

Mask of Duplicity

I have waiting for this book to be released in audiobook, and thrilled to say it has been well worth the wait. Rosslyn and Will, have done a brilliant job of bringing Julia’s wonderful story and characters spectacularly to life. I highly recommend it to those who are already fans of Julia’s books and for all those yet to discover this brilliant work of historical fiction, that tells the history of the 45 Jacobite Rising through the wonderful characters of Alex, Beth and co. I for one will listen to it many times and look forward to the release of the rest of these books in this fabulous series.

Engaging story and narration

It would be good if the chapters on screen matched the commentary. It was hard to find my place each night as a result.

Outstanding audible novel experience.

Mask of Duplicity is a wonderful narrative, written by Julia Brennan. Spoken by Rosalyn and Will it is a rich narrative combining history, drama in the best storytelling tradition.
